Bridge e-Waste Drives
Bridge has organized and sponsored six e-Waste Drives since 2009.
Through our most recent e-Waste Drive in October 2013,
Bridge collected and properly recycled more e-Waste than ever –
10,113 pounds, over 5 tons!
Most electronic products used in our workplaces and homes contain hazardous
substances, such as lead and mercury. When these products reach the end of
their useful lives or become obsolete, some are considered hazardous waste.
Hazardous waste cannot be discarded in the regular trash!
However, current figures compiled by the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency indicate that over 2 million tons of electronic waste wind up in landfills each year!
A great option for properly disposing of this waste is to bring these items to our biannual collection days.
Bridge's next e-Waste Drive will be held in the spring
in the spirit of Earth Day 2014.
